Age-Depth Modelling using Bayesian Statistics

An approach to age-depth modelling that uses Bayesian statistics to reconstruct accumulation histories for deposits, through combining radiocarbon and other dates with prior information. See Blaauw & Christen (2011) <doi:10.1214/11-BA618>.

Functions in rbacon

Name Description
A.modelled Calculate modelled 210Pb
Bacon.cleanup Remove files made to produce the current core's age-depth model.
accrate.age.ghost Plot a core's accumulation rates against calendar time.
Bacon.hist Calculate age distributions of depths.
accrate.age Obtain estimated accumulation rates for any age of a core.
Baconvergence Test to identify poorly mixed MCMC runs.
Bacon.Age.d Output all ages for a single depth.
accrate.depth Obtain estimated accumulation rates as for any depth of a core.
age.pMC Calculate pMC values from C14 ages
AgesOfEvents Event probabilities against calendar age
agedepth Plot an age-depth model
clam2bacon Translate clam .csv files to Bacon .csv files.
accrate.depth.ghost Plot modelled accumulation rates against the depths of a core.
calib.plot Plot the dates
copyCalibrationCurve Copy a calibration curve.
draw.pbmodelled Plot the 210Pb data
flux.age.ghost Plot flux rates for proxies.
calib.plumbacon.plot Plot the dates
bacon2clam Translate Bacon .csv files to clam .csv files.
Bacon Main age-depth modelling function
scissors Remove the first n iterations.
agemodel.it Extract one age-model iteration
pMC.age Calculate C14 ages from pMC values.
mix.curves Build a custom-made, mixed calibration curve.
add.dates Add dates to age-depth plots
proxy.ghost Proxies analysed along the depths of a core can be plotted as 'proxy-ghost' graphs against calendar time while taking into account chronological uncertainties. Here darker grey indicates more likely calendar ages for specific proxy values.
thinner Thin iterations.
